The result...

Let's flick on the TV and see who won the big game...
Look! There's Hawthorn captain Sam Mitchell and coach Alistair Clarkson accepting the Premiership Cup. Let's all sing a round of the Hawthorn theme song to celebrate (believe it or not, it's sung to the tune of 'Yankee Doodle Dandy'):

We're a happy team at Hawthorn.
We're the mighty fighting Hawks.
We love our club and we play to win.
Riding the bumps with a grin at Hawthorn.
Come what may you'll find us striving.
Teamwork is the thing that talks.
One for all and all for one.
Is the way we play at Hawthorn.
We are the mighty fighting Hawks.

That's right, everycat, the Hawthorn Hawks staged an upset to beat the Geelong Cats in yesterday's 2008 Australian Football League Grand Final. It was a very close, intense, arm-wrestle of a game, but Hawthorn rose to the top in the third quarter and stayed there, beating last year's champions by 26 points. This is the Hawks' first premiership victory since 1991, and their tenth overall.

This was only the second time this year that the Cats lost a game, so it was a massive effort from the Hawks, and a massive effort from our friend Lux, who tipped the Hawks by 22 points, which makes him the winner of my AWESOME Footy Finals Fever Competition for 2008.

Congratulations, Lux, and congratulations to the Hawthorn Hawks! Can't wait until season 2009!

Thanks so much to everyone who entered my competition. Hope you had fun.

Oh, poohy! We were/are upset but probably not as upset as the Geelong Cats!

Tracey and Huffle said...

Well done Lux!

Even though I tipped the Cats to win, I wanted the Hawks to win so I am happy! Do you think Shane Crawford will retire on a high note?

Thanks for putting on the competition Pablo! It was a tough result to predict, so concats to Lux for tipping so close to the actual result.
